Quote of the Day

After picking up my son from school today I casually ask him what would he say if I told him I was deploying to Iraq? He deadpans;
"Give me a gun, let me shoot you, and I'll save you the trouble of going."

I laughed, he chuckled and I told him I was not going to Iraq anytime soon... that I knew of... but I wanted to know what he would say. Crazy kid, where do they think of these things??

We had a very loooong talk about the dangers of deploying, but that different jobs mean different dangers. His Uncle Jimmy is a MP and would be in considerable more danger than "moi", a communications tech. Not to say I wouldn't be in any danger...but... you know what I mean.

He still thinks his mom is a loon.
